Asmah Hanim receives her diploma from Dr. J√≥zsef Tihanyi, the dean of the faculty, “Before I started the course, I had 3 objectives: to gain new knowledge, meet new friends and explore a new place. Safe to say, I have accomplished what I set out to do. Doing well for the course was a bonus! Overall, it was experience for me.”
